    Douglas Wong; I thought this was cool...

    Supposedly today I had his son come in and scope my gym today. I'm a fan of Master Wong's and it actually made my day. I thought I'd share.

    No offense, but I used to read his books when I was a teenager, then I went down, and was kind of underwhelmed when I visited his school. They were very vague about kung fu as self defense, and did some really outdated calisthenics- straight leg sit ups, etc. His son must have been 7 years old, and was twirling around a staff while master Wong talked to a friend about how his son had won a forms competition. This was back in 1990. Anyway, I was probably expecting a bigger school etc.
